Registering & Managing Teammates for the Hackathon

Many hackathon participants have complained about not seeing their teammates on their PipeOps dashboard in the last few weeks. “My teammates are not reflecting on the PipeOps dashboard” is the popular phrase we get on our support channel. 

In this section, we’ll share more insight into how teams are supposed to work, how they are structured and all you need to know about teams on PipeOps.

Registering a team:

The team registration happens during the step 2 part of the registration process. In this step, a member of your team will have to create a team (if it hasn’t already been created). This is needed to ensure that when your teammates each register, they can select your created team from the list of the teams dropdown.

A few things to keep in mind

  • Only technical team members are to register at this time (i.e members that will be writing code) 
  • You will not see your team members on the PipeOps dashboard. You are to add your technical team members to your project repo as collaborators, this way they have access to the repo from their individual GitHub accounts connected to their PipeOps accounts. They will all deploy that project repo on their accounts. This way, when any commit is made to that repo, it will reflect on all accounts. This is how all team members of a team will register their participation.

How about your other teammates?

  • Yes, we understand that teams are not only technical people. For non-technical teammates, modes for registration will be communicated in a few days.

How can you adjust your teams?

We understand you might want to remove or add a member to your team or create a team after registering as an individual. No matter the case, please follow these steps

  • Ensure everyone who intends to participate in this hackathon completes their registration as soon as possible
  • Be on the lookout for more instructions via email or on our hackathon channel on Slack.

We are committed to making this a memorable experience for all participants, please do well to stay updated with all the latest news via our channels (Email, Slack, social media).
